Since they were with me there was plenty of reading involved.
However, Thing Two preferred the interactive museum displays.
When we finally reached Spokevegas the Things were delighted to kick back and relax.
There was also a visit to mini golf, bowling, and batting cages. Then we went to Sonic and took in a movie.
In case you were wondering, Wall e is a very cute flick. We also discovered there are off-road riding areas near Spokane, so we had to do some scouting for return trips with the three wheelers. I got to sit and chat with my sis for a bit( always a good thing) and Mr. Logo and Mr. EES got to shoot the sh...breeze in the garage for a while, so everyone was happy.
Then it was time to press on to the Tricities. Most of the road looked just like this.About 70 miles away from Kennewick the Harley started to splutter and cough, and die. We managed to limp it along to this exit.which is still the middle of nowhere, but at least there was a tree to provide some shade. Good thing too, because it was going to be a while. Since Red Molly was still feeling fine Thing One and I carried on to the hotel once we got in touch with the roadside assistance through our insurance (Thank you, Gecko!) and we knew help was on the way, even though it might take some time.
In Kennewick my friend April came over to hang out with us. Last time we visited her she fed us an ENORMOUS dinner which was also delicious so this time we invited her to go out to eat with us. Mr. Logo and Thing One finally made it to the hotel and we went to a lovely little Mexican place with super yummy handmade tortillas. Mmmm
The Kennewick Harley shop couldn't do anything with the bike till after the 4th so we settled in and spent the day with April. She borrowed her mom's van and ferried us all about the historic Tricities area and even took us out to the Hanford site.
On the 5th we were informed that the part required to fix the Sporty was not in stock and couldn't arrive till Tuesday.
This was a mild disappointment (understatement).
Mr. Logo was not thrilled (understatment).
We ended up renting a Uhaul and trucking the stupid thing back but we made time to stop at a couple wonderful roadside attractions, such as the volcano bathrooms and dino park at Granger, WAIt was a great day, and we all were happy, happy, happy, the whole day through.
